2023 NFL Mock Draft 5.0: Anthony Richardson Vaults Way Up, While Jalen Carter ‘Slides’ to Team That Trades Back
The 2023 NFL Draft has been a popular topic in recent weeks, with various experts and analysts sharing their rankings and mock drafts. The latest mock draft from Yahoo Sports’ Anthony Treash has caused a stir in the sports world, as Florida Gators quarterback Anthony Richardson has vaulted his way up to the seventh overall pick.
Richardson’s impressive showing in the Gators’ spring game, coupled with his athleticism and arm strength, have made him a rising star in the college football world. Treash believes that Richardson’s potential is too big to ignore and will be a top pick in the 2023 draft.
However, the mock draft is not without controversy. Georgia Bulldogs defensive tackle Jalen Carter, who many believed would be a top pick in the 2023 draft, has “slid” to the 24th overall pick. Treash explains that Carter’s lack of production in his sophomore season and his medical history could be concerns for NFL teams.
The mock draft also features trades, as Treash predicts that the Carolina Panthers will trade up to the fourth overall pick to select Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Spencer Rattler, while the Philadelphia Eagles will trade back to the 20th overall pick to select Michigan Wolverines defensive end Aidan Hutchinson.
The 2023 NFL Draft is still years away, but it’s clear that experts are already eyeing some of the top prospects in the college football world. Fans will have to wait and see how these players perform in the coming season and whether they will live up to their potential come draft day.
